In the past few years, the cloud revolution has taken our eye off the ball. I have seen normal people trying to make a business work online by studying the technical specs of hosting. They try really hard to figure out how many bits and bytes they should have and what apps and widgets they should use with them.
It’s all a waste of time. Forget how much RAM and CPU you get. Stop talking about cores and bursting. You should even stop worrying about uptime. If you’re in business and your job is to make money, quit worrying about all that stuff.
The cloud hasn’t made things easier for anyone, it’s only made things more complex. People have billions of choices, but they don’t need to see who offers the biggest numbers to make the right choices.
The most important thing to look for in a cloud instance is people.
The managed services industry is full of people who build cloud infrastructure for a living. Our goal is to give you — for a lot less stress than if you did it yourself — exactly what you need to run your business. An organization like ours is a partner in your success and we grow when you grow.
Stop examining every last nuance of the cloud and come work with a team that helps businesses like yours get up and running for a living. The first, last and only thing you need to look for in a cloud solution is experts who have your back. Forget anything else: It’s all about the people.
